Explore the Layouts of These Iconic TV Businesses


Though it varies from series to series, many TV shows keep their action contained to a handful of sets: the house, the workplace, and the local bar or cafe are the three settings viewers will see again and again. In 2016, we shared the layouts of eight famous TV apartments, from the White residence in Breaking Bad to Lorelai and Rory’s home in Gilmore Girls. Now, the UK business selling platform Bizdaq has taken that concept and applied it to some of the most iconic offices and businesses that have appeared in prime time.

According to Co.Design, Bizdaq contracted graphic designer Kim Schneider to draw up the fictional floor plans. She includes what are arguably the two most famous TV offices of all time: Dunder Mifflin from The Office and Sterling Cooper from Mad Men. The collection also includes the neighborhood establishments that characters frequent when they’re not at work, like Moe’s Tavern from The Simpsons and Central Perk from Friends.

For some rooms that were never revealed on screen, the artist had to take some artistic liberties. But each design, from Don Draper's sleek 1960s office to the cartoony interior of Moe's, was brought to life with the spirit of the show in mind. You can check out the floor plans below.

If you’ve gone through all the recipes you had bookmarked on your phone and are now on a first-name basis with the folks at the local pizzeria, it might be time to introduce a new wrinkle into your weekly dinner menu. But instead of buying loads of groceries and cookbooks to make your own meal, you can just subscribe to a service like Blue Apron, which will deliver all the ingredients and instructions you need for a unique dinner.

And if you start your subscription before May 26, you can save $20 on each of your first three weekly boxes from the company. That means that whatever plan you choose—two or four meals a week, vegetarian or the Signature plan—you’ll save $60 in total.

With the company’s Signature plan, you’ll get your choice of meat, fish, and Beyond foods, along with options for diabetes-friendly and Weight Watchers-approved dishes. The vegetarian plan loses the meat, but still allows you to choose from a variety of dishes like General Tso's tofu and black bean flautas.

To get your $60 off, head to the Blue Apron website and click “Redeem Offer” at the top of the page to sign up.

It's a good time to be a fan of The Office. The NBC series may have ended nearly seven years ago, but the cast still manages to surprise us on a regular basis. Whether it be an impromptu reunion, or sharing some details about the sitcom in new interviews, fans are still able to reminisce on a daily basis. But the best gift yet for those running out of things to watch while stuck at home may have just arrived: A collection of digital shorts from the beloved series is available to purchase on iTunes, and it's full of never-before-seen-on-TV content.

The collection includes 10 episodes of hilarity from your favorite The Office characters, including Michael Scott, Jim Halpert, Pam Beesly, Angela Martin, and Kelly Kapoor. One of these shorts is actually an Emmy winner titled "The Accountants," which sounds pretty intriguing.

So grab some popcorn (be sure to clean out the microwave when you're done) and a few of your fellow The Office fanatics, because this is your chance to re-live the Dunder Mifflin days all over again. You can access all of the episodes here.
